HI everyone
I was wondering if using diffenbachia plant on too of aquarium put any poison to my tank?
Ive cut a buch and left it in a bowl to re root

One baby has already roots and the big one is just new
So question is
If I put the rooted ine on top would it be bad for the fish?
The bowl has some gravel at the bottom so if I remove the plant should I rinse it if I want to use the bowl as a temp tank for my aquarium plant I’m reciving today?
Any ifeas?
Thanks

It should be fine as long as the plant isn't freshly cut and leeching anything into the water. I tried this myself with dumb cane (probably not the best idea) in a smaller tank and everyone was okay.

I cut the dumb cane and left it in a paper towel for a day and then it is in a jar with some gravel in it

My Hornwort is on the way and when it gets here I want to wash if and put it for a few days in that jar and then move some tI my tanks
